Terms and Conditions

2. Scope of License; Institutional Subscriber Use Restrictions.
The subscription includes authorization by means of the Subscriber’s IP address to allow site-wide online access by authorized users via multiple connections. If a proxy server is being registered for access, the Subscriber agrees to maintain the security of the access by authenticating authorized users before allowing use of the proxy to any remote or on-site user. Authorized users must be employees, staff, or (for academic Subscribers) faculty or students, officially affiliated with the Subscriber, or authorized on-site patrons of the Subscriber’s library facilities.
Sites may be academic or nonacademic. For academic Subscribers, different campuses are considered different sites even if they are within the same city. Departments or libraries of the same campus are considered part of the same site. For nonacademic Subscribers, sites are defined as geographically separate units, even if they are within the same city. Each branch, office, or laboratory is a different site.
This subscription entitles the Subscriber and authorized users to access all portions of Paragraphfour.com and:
a. make searches of Paragraphfour.com
b. download search results to paper, hard disk, or diskette, provided that such data is not made available to anyone who is not an authorized user. Authorized users who do download search results must maintain all copyright and other notices.
Systematic downloading of substantial portions of the database and use of robots is prohibited.
Academic and public library Subscribers may use hard copies derived from the electronic edition of the publications for the purpose of inter-library loan with the same limitations that apply to copies for that purpose made from the print or online versions of the publications. Specifically, copies must be made in compliance with Section 108 of the Copyright Act of the U.S. and be within the CONTU guidelines. Authorized users who do print items must maintain all copyright and other notices on the printed items.
A Subscriber or authorized user may not make Paragraphfour.com available to anyone other than another authorized user, whether by telephone link, Internet connection, or by permitting access through his or her terminal or computer, or by other similar or dissimilar means or arrangements.
Subscribers will make reasonable efforts to maintain security and monitor all use (including unauthorized use) from their sites and to communicate the terms of the license to their users.
Paragraphfour.com access is granted site-wide only for those users specifically agreed upon in writing by Confirmation E-mail. Subscribers may request access for any number of users; however, usage must be restricted to a single site, or such larger number of sites as may be expressly stated in the subscription agreement.
4. Term and Fees.
The annual subscription fee shall be as agreed upon in writing by Confirmation E-mail. The fee shall be payable within 30 (thirty) days after receipt of invoice. Subsequent annual subscription fees shall be invoiced by Parry Ashford Inc. and shall be due and payable within 30 (thirty) days of receipt.
Subscriber and its authorized users must use the assigned usernames and passwords in order access to the Subscriber-only portions of Paragraphfour.com.
The term and each renewal term of a subscription will last through one year after the term begins (the “Renewal Date”). The subscription will renew thereafter for successive one year terms unless Subscriber cancels the subscription by providing at least thirty (30) days written notice before the Renewal Date of such cancellation.
The annual fee for this subscription may be raised by written notice to the Subscriber, given at least sixty 60 days prior to the next succeeding Renewal Date. Subscriber may terminate a subscription, effective on the next Renewal Date, by at least 30 days written notice to Parry Ashford Inc., which may be given by e-mail through the Customer Service link on the Paragraphfour.com website. The Subscriber will be liable for the subscription fee for the upcoming renewal term if it fails to give notice of termination at least 30 days before the Renewal Date.
Payment in full for a renewal term is due within thirty (30) days after receipt of invoice which shall be sent to Subscriber on or before the Renewal Date. There is no grace period, and access to Paragraphfour.com will terminate after the Renewal Date until payment is made. Late payment of the full year’s subscription fee will reinstate the subscription through the end of the calendar year in which the payment is made.
